We run an official for-credit internship program for our undergraduate and postgraduate coursework students.
How to apply
Follow these steps to apply for a science internship. The process is slightly different depending on whether the placement is advertised or you find it yourself.
1. Express your interest
Submit an Expression of Interest form to confirm your eligibility for the course. To be eligible you must have a Distinction average in your program and have completed a minimum of 72 units by the time of placement. Postgraduate applicants are required to have completed 24 units and have approval from the Program Convener and the Supervisor. Expressions of Interest for internships in Spring 2019, Summer 2020 and Semester 1 2020 close on 20 October 2019.
2. Submit your application
When you receive confirmation of your eligibility from the Science Internships Office, submit your application by sending your CV, one-page Statement of Interest and Suitability and/or other requirements listed on the internship project description to email@example.com. Applications for internships in Spring 2019, Summer 2020 and Semester 1 2020 close on 10 November 2019 - please note this is during the University's exam period.
For advertised internships, applications will be forwarded to the host organisation for consideration.
For self-sourced internships, we must confirm the suitability of the project. You will not be eligible for enrolment for a self-sourced internship until you have received formal approval from the Internship Convener.
3. Attend the interview
For advertised internships: You may be asked to attend an interview, we will notify you if you are successful.
For self-sourced internships: We will inform you if your project is approved.
If you are successful or approved for an intership, we will send you the Internship Schedule, Student Deed Poll, and Student Insurance Approval form for completion. Final approval is conditional on you finding an ANU supervisor.
4. Complete documentation
Fully complete the forms we sent you:
- Internship Schedule
- Student Deed Poll
- Student Insurance Approval form
Scan and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. You must receive signed approval from both the ANU and host organisation supervisors before you can enrol in the internship course and commence your internship.
Once all signatures and approvals have been received we will send you a permission code to enrol in the internship course. After enrolment, you may then proceed to commence the internship as outlined in the Internship Schedule. You must attend any Internship Induction courses as advised by ANU or the host organisation.
